Designing a great
golf car is like playing a great round.
It's about controlling
all the factors.
From the advanced
IntelliPower system, with its state-of-the-art regenerative braking,
to the ultra-reliable Trojan batteries, we're determined to leave
nothing to chance.
We're the only golf
car manufacturer that designs and builds its own motor control unit
and battery charger.
No wonder we have the
lowest maintenance costs in the business.

particulars? Keep reading and we'll tell you about some of the
reasons to consider the Yamaha Drive.
The Drive Electric Specifications
The Drive Gas Vehicle
Most Comfortable Seat in the Industry
contours are intended to help hold occupants in place while the car
is moving. Designed to accommodate occupants of all different
heights and sizes, it's made of pure, supple foam bonded to a
seamless, fabric-backed vinyl cover, and the polypropylene seat base
is strengthened with plated steel inserts. Won't sag or warp, stands
up to repeated pressure washings, and remains the most comfortable
seat in the business despite daily abuse.
with Dual Gutters
Our top is wider and extends farther in
the front for maximum occupant protection, and it's longer in the
rear to give maximum protection without interfering with the clubs.
It has the only 360o double rain channel in the industry, and its
integrated water drain system has an exclusive clog-proof design.
It's built for rattle-free stability and has integrated grab handles
as well as universal mounting points for information holders and GPS
systems. So who's afraid of a little rain?
How do you make a chassis nearly 20% lighter and
2.5 times stronger? We mated an automotive, ladder-style, 100%
robotically welded frame, protected by an 18-step paint process,
with a polypropylene structural floor. A self-contained pedal box
gives the pedals top and bottom protection from dirt, debris, and
stray golf tees.
EnduraDrive Transaxle with Internal Disc
An industry first, inspired by the
Yamaha ATV. A completely enclosed disc brake system that eliminates
brake drums and shoes, needs only one brake cable, and is projected,
based on extensive testing, to have an incredibly long life with
essentially no maintenance.
Most Powerful 48-Volt Electric
Motor in the Industry
Manufactured by Hitachi, our
electric motor is high quality, highly efficient, whisper quiet, and
generates 3.5 horsepower, which beats anyone else's in the business.
Its internal components are nickel-plated and stainless steel for
corrosion resistance, and it even has its own internal solid state
industry spent a hundred years getting this right, so why not use
it? We gave it four cup holders to hold different-size cups; a
center storage area for wallets, cell phones, and personal items;
six ball holders; six tee holders; and a big, easy-to-clean storage
compartment on each side.
Tru-Trak II Fully Independent
No other golf car has a suspension like
this. We designed a maintenance-free suspension using
automotive-style, coil-over-shock struts to minimize roll and
deliver a smooth, comfortable ride. Sooner or later, some golfer
will offer to trade you his car for it.
Instead of six 8-volt batteries, we
use four 12-volt batteries. It's more efficient and less expensive
to maintain, and it also has fewer cables and terminal connectors.
What's more, it's 57 pounds lighter than the old configuration. All
the power with a lot less trouble.
Genius2 PDA-Based Diagnostics and Programming
reason we call it "Genius". A common PDA with an infrared wireless
connection allows for communication with the Yamaha Drive motor
control unit. In addition, it enables customization of the speed and
regenerative braking, using 25 settings to match your course and
terrain. It stores and displays battery and vehicle data such as AMP
hours, miles, and MCU serial numbers, as well as diagnostic and
troubleshooting information, helping you get peak performance and
maximum profitability from your fleet.
